The decade's most triggering comedy
Former U.S. Attorney General William Barr, who served under former President Donald Trump, hammered his former boss this week when asked if Trump was fit to be President of the United States.
Barr made the remarks on Friday at the City Club of Cleveland in Ohio when asked by journalist Geraldo Rivera about the former president.
“Is he fit to be President of the United States?” Rivera asked. “Is Donald Trump fit to be president?”
“Well, this is the way I’ll answer that Geraldo, which is, if you believe in his policies … he’s the last person who could actually execute them and achieve them,” Barr responded. “He does not have the discipline. He does not have the ability for strategic thinking and linear thinking or setting priorities or how to get things done in the system.”
“It is a horror show when he’s left to his own devices,” Barr continued. “And so you may want his policies, but Trump will not deliver Trump policies, he will deliver chaos, and if anything, lead to a backlash that will set his policies much further back than they otherwise would be.”

Barr said back at the end of March that he believes the impetus for some of the criminal investigations into the former president, especially the case involving Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, are to “help Trump get the nomination.”
“Most Democrats who get involved in this kind of thing, they actually want to run against Trump, because they think — whether they’re right or wrong — they think they can beat him,” Barr said. “And so they are actually trying to help him by generating the support of his base.”
“And they feel that that will generate their own turnout,” Barr added. “And so they’re essentially, I think, playing for a repeat of the 2020 election.”
